Nearly 24 thousand people showed up for a rally in memory of Boris Nemtsov, a Russian opposition politician, in Moscow. They marched from the Chekhovskaya metro station in Strastnoy boulevard to Akademic Saharov avenue.
A placard reading ‘Murdered for freedom’ was being carried at the font of the column headed by such leaders of Russian opposition as Mikhail Kasyanov, Ilya Yashin, Alexey Navalny, Vladimir Milov, Dmitry Gudkov and Vladimir Kara-Murza Jr.
Many of the protesters were carrying Russian flags with black stripes, as well as flags of the PARNAS and Solidarity opposition parties.
Vera Savchenko, a sister of political prisoner Nadezhda Savchenko, as well as Mark Feigin and Nikolay Polozov, Nadezhda Savchenko’s lawyers, headed one of the columns. People walking in the column were carrying placards calling for Nadezhda Savchenko’s release, as well Ukrainian and Crimean Tatar flags.
Marches in memory of Boris Nemtsov also took place in Russia’s Saint-Petersburg and Ukraine’s Kiev.
